The Art Program at NEO A&M College gives students a sound foundation in drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture and design, all taught in small studio classes that allow creative interaction with the instructor and among the students. Many techniques are explored to build analytic and artistic skills and to develop portfolios for art majors who plan to go on to the workplace or to other programs of higher education in the arts. Graphic Design offers opportunities to learn current computerized techniques. Special Problems in Art allows instructor-guided independent study. Introduction to Art is an illustrated lecture and discussion-based class that encourages students to develop a strong vocabulary in the visual arts and an understanding of art in our world and in the context of human history. Art classes at NEO are accessible to all students regardless of major. Field trips to museums and studios are scheduled every semester.

Kah-Ne-You-Ah Hall is home to the Charles Banks Wilson Art and Cultural Education Center, which houses both the Art Program and the American Indian Center for Excellence. A 1930s WPA project that originally served as a women’s dormitory, the newly renovated Kah-Ne Hall combines its historic facade with a contemporary urban loft interior. Art facilities include gallery space for exhibitions, classrooms with digital projectors, a computer lab, a 3D studio containing workspaces and potters’ wheels, and a large 2D studio with arched windows on three sides that allow an abundance of natural lighting.
